If you want to know what makes people "tick," find out what ticks them off. Because people only really get angry about the things that really matter to them.... So much that makes us mad, though, is really very petty.... And anger gets a bad press and rightly so because it tends to most often be the expression of bruised egos.... Most often the things that get us mad are the things that get in our way. That destruct our plans. That disrupt our peace. That frustrate our hopes. That mess with our dignity... I'm not saying that anger isn't always unjustified. I'm saying that it's most often always about ourselves.
